Man Calls 911 Over Sandwich Order (Where's the Cheese?)
NBC CT ^ | June 15, 2012 | LeAnne Gendreau

A Connecticut man knows how he likes his sandwich, and so does the 911 dispatcher who took his call on Wednesday afternoon complaining about how it was made.

“I specifically asked for little turkey, and little ham, a lot of cheese and a lot of mayonnaise and they are giving me a hard time. I wonder if you can stop by and just …” he said when he called 911 from Greatful Deli in East Hartford on Wednesday afternoon.

To some people, they only control they have in life is when they order a sandwich. When that goes wrong they ferak out. It’s why people lose their marbles when McDonald’s doesn’t have Chicken Mcnuggets.

They take the Police Motto a bit too literally

“To Serve and Protect” has nothing to do with sandwiches:)

I only call when they put the cheese ON after I’ve told them I don’t want it...

Rush talked about these calls to 911. He astutely pointed out that this should be expected from a society that is entirely dependent on government for everything.

“He astutely pointed out that this should be expected from a society that is entirely dependent on government for everything.”

Are you sure it’s that complicated?

I’m convinced that all the people who do this are drunk at the time.

“Tila Azinheira, who owns the deli, said the man placed a phone order for 14 sandwiches and they made them the way he asked. Then, he did not want to pay for them. Azinheira said the deli told the man they could not take the sandwiches back because they were special orders, then he used the deli’s phone to call 911.”

14 special order sandwiches would probably add up to $100 or more. If, either, the man refused to pay, or the store was forcing him to pay for something he didn’t order, what should they have done, settled in small claims court? Because if you call the police at any number but 911, they most likely wouldn’t show up for hours, if at all.

What’s next, Sandra Fluke calls about a missing diaphragm? Geeze.

Close.

The issue is there is supposed to be a complaint department for everything. Soon people will call because it is raining on their picnic they planned for 3 weeks.

The call here in Florida from the girl who wanted chicken McNuggets were from a sober, plantation dweller. That was when Rush made the observation.

Some time ago a friend of mine lost her dog, and the people who found the dog, instead of calling her, called the police. OK, I guess they had their reasons, but the funny part (and it is funny) is that the police told my friend that if her dog runs off again she should call 911.

The only way I can explain it is that the cops here are bored and will take anything they can get.

The man in question called it in on a Wednesday afternoon.

Doesn't mean he wasn't intoxicated, but if this had been a 3a.m. Sunday morning conversation it would have been more clearcut.

But did he jump on the counter, wailing away at the employees and wrecking the place?

That's how you get your order done correctly. ...where's this guy been?

This is how he should have handled it.

Lol! That may well happen here in Bloomberg’s NYC when customers are refused a soft drink over 16ozs.

Oh, dear.

It brings to mind a line in Delany’s “Driftglass” which I don’t have to hand exactly.

But words to the effect of: I didn’t realize it had gotten this bad.....

Something better than that, subtler, like our problems have become, very freaking subtle and ingrained.
